What a horrible series. This team cannot handle the spotlight. Haven't played well in big games all year. Thank God this series is over. I think we would have lost 25 out of 25 games to these guys. I sure don't want to see anymore of this.
"The guy I think could be really good in center is Adam Dunn. If someone asked me if Dunn could be a center fielder for the next 10 years, if he started working on it, no one could explain to me why he couldn’t do it." - Brad Kullman
I'll say it because no one else will, but the Phillies are so good, that no one was going to beat them. They come in with those 3 hammers and you just don't have a chance. It was a magical season, but we faced a team with hammers. Our pitching was suburb but there was simply overpowering. They didn't hit us much and if not for a ball in the lights and a phantom HBP, we'd be playing tomorrow. But we're not. This is a good team and I cry because it's over but can't wait for Spring Training.

Also want to thank you guys. I've had a lot of fun in the Game Threads this year.
Heather, durl, Chip, Charles, Reds Fanatic, reds44, Redsman3203, Homer Bailey, kbrake, and so many countless others- THANK YOU, it's been fun.
Game 2 was the backbreaker.
It was a fun year though. October was interesting for the first time in a long time for me.
Stop! Heisey time!
